DON'T CALL ME, ARCHBISHOP.

In October of 2013, speaking about his getting rid of Fr. Paul Gofigan in front of thirty members of the clergy, Archbishop Apuron bragged:
"...even S.N.A.P. heard about this and applauded me for doing this on this priest and hope that I do not reinstate him because of that..."
S.N.A.P. stand for Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. I was particularly angered when I heard about what Archbishop Apuron had said because in 2010, when SNAP was on Guam investigating the Archbishop, I was asked to publicly go on the offensive against SNAP in order to defend him. And so I did. I learned later that I had been lied to and that SNAP's visit had been a close call for the Archbishop. 


I kept quiet about it because I didn't know all the details but I was shocked to hear the Archbishop bragging about SNAP supporting his decision against Fr. Paul when I had been used as cannon fodder to protect him only a couple of years earlier. Well, Archbishop, now it's your turn to protect yourself. Don't call me. 

And Fr. Wadeson...really? Too bad you didn't keep to yourself your "deep concern and hurt" (your words) about us lay people learning about the content of your Monday meeting with the Apostolic Delegate. Otherwise no one would have even known you were here. (Of course given what we learned about what was said at both meetings, we can see why you didn't want us to know.) But since you let us know WHERE you are, now you can let us know WHO you are:



For immediate release: Friday, July 18, 2014

Statement by Joelle Casteix of Newport Beach, CA, 949-322-7434 cell, jcasteix@gmail.com

We are shocked to learn that a Los Angeles priest from Los Angeles - accused twice of molesting children - now works as a priest on Guam. We strongly urge Guam Catholic officials to oust him.

Fr. John Wadeson, has been named in LA archdiocese records and in news reports as a twice accused predator priest. Because those allegations were deemed “credible” by church officials, he is not allowed to present himself as a priest anywhere in the Archdiocese of LA.

Despite this, Guam Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron is letting Fr. Wadeson work and act as a priest. Apuron also lets Fr. Wadeson travel to other dioceses, including Honolulu.

Although Fr. Wadeson has not been convicted of abuse, the fact that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has banned him from ministry is just cause for Apuron to remove the cleric immediately. We fear that Apuron is putting Guam's children at direct risk and protecting a credibly accused predator instead of protecting his flock.

We urge Apuron to immediate remove Fr. Wadeson from ministry and make public announcements about Fr. Wadeson at every parish where he has worked or celebrated Mass, begging anyone who may have seen, suspected or suffered crimes or misdeeds by Fr. Wadeson to step forward, get help, call police, protect others and start healing.

We also want Apuron to explain to parishioners that Fr. Wadeson has been accused of abuse by two children and is banned from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

We also beg Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez to immediately tell Apuron about the risks that Fr. Wadeson poses. As a powerful Archbishop, Gomez can easily use his power and influence to ensure that Fr. Wadeson can never work as a priest again.

Finally, we applaud whistleblowers in the Archdiocese of Hagatna, who are working steadfastly to ensure that Fr. Wadeson is removed and his past is exposed.

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 25 years and have more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)

  1. Maybe the Archbishop needs to rethink his "No one can get me", or at least not say it out loud.

    1. Yes, God is not sleeping. This is true. And if you're Catholic (which I am not) shouldn't you be praying for Archbishop other than entertaining this blog of persecution?

      You are all hypocrites. This blog is filled with nothing but sinners. You all think you are better than Apuron? He's just in the spotlight because of his tilte and its and easy target.

      Hypocrites you are! All of you! Especially you Tim. And I am as well, but I can admit that!

  5. No, they are singing the "we are persecuted" song. It has been said among them that Archbishop Krebs branded Jungle Watch as an anti-Catholic site. With all their past lies, we know better.

    1. Yes. Note to idiots (no other word comes to mind): JungleWatch is neither a Catholic or non-Catholic site. In fact it is not about any religion. It was established to shine the light of truth on everything from government corruption to abortion and to all manner of evils in our community. Shining the light of truth, substantiated from top to bottom, is all this site does. And when truth shines, evil cowers.

  6. The Archbishop will call on the NCW who he needs personally and spiritually. They have learned people who can help him like Jackie Terlaje, a lawyer, and Dr. Ricardo Eusebio. Maybe Monsignor David and Fr Adrian can step up too with their henchmen act. The Archbishop can even bring those Neo Priest back to circle around him again. I have heard that at every other clergy meeting they are mute and dumb, but from the meeting with Archbishop Krebs, we now know otherwise! Honestly, maybe it is best for the Archbishop to leave his wagon train behind. A loose canon might call for a lynching and even degrade the indigenous people in their own home. Wait! Been there, done that! I'm off to cook Kadon Manok (chicken soup) now.

    Seriously, how could Archbishop Tony applaud SNAP when he himself has an accused priest still actively working? He should tread lightly here on his response, but I have a feeling we will hear silence yet again.

      STFU. You're probably some old person living a life trying to make sure you're sins aren't published anywhere. Like many of you say..."God is not sleeping".... so then... you better ask for forgiveness because judging your bishop is bad! Bad I tell you...

  9. Fr. Paul never put anyone at risk or in damage by embracing a convicted criminal and his family back to the Church. The man's identity and his crime was nit a secret. Everyone knew him, and in fact the manamkos and many others welcomed him and ask him to help.

    Archbishop Apuron on the other hand secretly, hastily, and illegally incardinated a priest who has been permanently banned by the archdiocese of Los Angeles.

    What goes around comes around!

    1. Time to bring back Fr. Paul. He is not the problem. We have always thought that Fr. Paul only acted like the Father in the prodigal son story and never did anything wrong to deserve the punishment he was subjected to. It is time that this injustice be undone. Time to bring back Fr. Paul. Time to end this injustice. Biba Fr. Paul. Mabuhay Fr. Paul. Only you and a few Guam priests can preach about forgiveness. About compassion. About unconditional love. All others, just do lip-service. All other priests are just fooling themselves. Time to make our Church on Guam forgiving. It is so ironic that a man who had served his sentence and forgiven by society, could not be forgiven by our church. Even after he asked for forgiveness and presented his family to God by getting married. To those who caused this harm, asked for forgiveness in the form of re-instating Fr. Paul to his old post.

  12. So you see, there is one set of rules for the NCW and another for the rest of us "judases"
    I mean really Archbishop, who is putting the children of this archdiocese at risk? The gentleman from Dededo had no authority, but
    Fr. Wadeson has the authority of a priest, an authority that you gave to him after the Diocese of Los Angeles stripped him of it.
    Funny how you tell your priests not to go to the blogs, I know you are reading this.

    2. He is going to try to ride this one out to. He's used to us just going away. He can sit tight...if we let him. But then that's up to all of you. How soon will you start writing letters to the editor with your names on them? Will you be calling the radio shows or will you be afraid your voice will be recognized? He's counting on you to stay quiet. It's up to you.

    3. John Wadeson served as a pastor of at least one Catholic parish in New Jersey after his stint in Los Angeles. Since the NCW was not in LA at that time (and still might not be), I assume he became associated with the movement while in New Jersey. The diocese of Trenton, as a matter of fact. While in New Jersey, the diocesan officials might have gotten word of the credible accusations made against him in LA and the stripping of his faculties there. That might have caused the NCW in New Jersey to look for somewhere to put him. Somewhere, um, "safe" and "remote".

      Let's ask Guiseppe Gennarini.

    5. Certainly would not allow children near Fr. Wadeson.

    6. The Guam-New Jersey Connection is the root of many, many problems. That marriage was not made in heaven. On another note: the propagation of the faith issue Tim brought up a while ago should not be laid to rest....Janet Bs question as to if we are paying for our missionaries we have sent far and wide is a good one. why are we supplying missionaries if we are a mission land. ????

    1. The Masses he says are valid even if he does not have the faculties to practice his priestly ministry publicly.

      Delete
    2. What about Confessions he heard? Were his absolutions valid? If not, this is indeed very, very serious!

      Delete
    3. Well, at least in the Archdiocese of Agana, courtesy of Apuron, he's a full-fledged, full-faculty priest. So he's good to go. But yes, very serious. But here's why. As I've said before Wadeson may be falsely accused - though the LA ban raises some question about that. The real issue here isn't Wadeson, but Apuron. Apuron is incardinating and ordaining willy-nilly at the orders of his neocatechumenal masters. And we can assume that he is ordaining priests out of RMS with the same recklessness and haste that he incardinated Wadeson.

      At last Tuesday's meeting with the delegate, the Neo's themselves let on that at least one of their priests has a history of attempted suicide - of course before he joined the Neo. Did that priest get a psychological test? Did he pass it? Is he still a danger to himself? To others? If something goes wrong it won't be the Archbishop who will pay, it will be us.

  17. Can we all realize that Father John is just like your favorite uncle....Diana says she would have him to babysit her kids!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "She" probably does not have children because no parent in their right mind would leave their children with a sexual predator. Plus, "she" probably wouldn't mind having "your" children watched by Uncle Father John.

      Delete
  18. It amazes me how Diana and the kilos tend to not focus on the real problem presented. For instance the problem with fr john, they worry why you Tim withheld this information or that he is only accused of sexual abuse, therefore it is ok for him to work here and Diana is willing to let him babysit. Ai adai, their thinking needs to change.

    1. LOL. Withheld information. Another demonstration of KAKA brain. The information is public and has been for a long time. I did not let it through on the comments previously because it wasn't relevant. However, Fr. John, decided to make himself relevant. But the information was always public.

      Delete
    2. I just love this when Diana calls for the investigation of a rogue priest, yet when there is no evidence of clearance for Wadeson she still backs the man. Convicted or not, the fact remains that there were two accusations against him. Whether charges were pressed is not the point. FATHER WADESON WAS ACCUSED AND IT IS THE DUTY OF THE ARCHBISHOP TO CLEAR THIS. IT MAY HAVE HAPPENED YEARS AGO, BUT THE FACTS REMAIN THE SAME...HE WAS ACCUSED!

      Delete
    3. The archdiocese of Los Angles took the extreme step of banning Fr. John Wadeson permanently, and even put notices to her parishes. Why? Because there was credible evidence that the sexual molestation actually took place. If there was a chance that Fr. John Wadeson was wrongfully accused, then the archdiocese of Los Angeles would have accorded him due process and defended him. There was none as far as we know, either because the evidence was clear but procedural or other issues prevented criminal prosecution or because Fr. Wadeson himself agreed to move on voluntarily. If Fr. John was wrongfully accused, why hasn't archbishop Apuron defended him? If he did, that would be like the guilty defending the guilty!

  19. By the Archbishop's own standard of justice, he should be relieved of his position in the archdiocese and left to find another benevolent bishop to take him in.

  20. Someone wrote "cleared in San Francisco..Now remember that he was a SVD when accused. Now Father Wadeson is RMS..probably got a letter of recommendation from the Archbishop to work or do ministry in San Francisco. Who knows what the story is, but there is no evidence that Father Wadeson is actually cleared. If the Archbishop won't step forward then let SNAP pressure.
